A political action committee created in support of Jeb Bush’s 2016 campaign for President is being handed one of the biggest fines in FEC history for taking money from a Chinese billionaire.

Right to Rise USA took the donation, which is said to have been $1.3 million, from two Chinese nationals- Gordon Tang and Huaidan Chen, executives at a company called American Pacific International Capital. Neil Bush, a brother of Jeb and President George W. Bush, is a board member of the company, asked the executives for the donation, according to reporting from Mother Jones.

The Campaign Legal Center filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Committee in regards to the large donation after reporting from The Intercept highlighted the potential violations of election laws that occurred through the donation.

Right to Rise spent more money than any Super PAC in American election history in support of Jeb Bush’s disastrous presidential campaign. It was led by GOPe political operative Mike Murphy, who spends his days in 2019 on Twitter lamenting what he perceives as a Russian conspiracy puppeteering Donald Trump’s election and presidency, in addition to the decline of traditional liberal politicians such as the Bushes in American politics.

Murphy seems much less boisterous in denouncing the Chinese election interference he abetted as chief strategist of Right to Rise, despite evidence for it being clear and substantial, unlike the Russian conspiracy liberals on the right and left have become addicted to.

In an ideal world, we’d be beyond even speaking about the Bushes and their political network, having politely recognized them as an element of American political history that is relegated to the past.

However, the hypocrisy of associated operatives like Murphy in denouncing fictitious Russian plots while chairing a PAC that accepted millions from Chinese companies means this legacy political dynasty can’t simply fade into history.

Report: Ghislane Maxwell Being “Moved from Cell to Cell” to Avoid “Assassins”

They fear another Epstein incident.

Longtime Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislane Maxwell is reportedly being “moved from cell to cell” to prevent any potential assassination attempts while in jail, according to an anonymous source close to the heiress who spoke to the Daily Mail.

Maxwell is being detained at MDC Brooklyn, a federal detention facility. It was originally feared she’d be placed in the Manhattan Detention Complex, the facility where the shocking death of infamous pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein took place. Maxwell is being federally charged with six counts relating to her alleged participation in Epstein’s underage sex trafficking operation, after being arrested at a remote New Hampshire home.

She is also someone who isn’t posh or prissy. She is being moved from cell to cell and sometimes has a cellmate, sometimes not. They [the authorities] are terrified someone will try to kill her so they keep moving her around.

The Department of Justice is taking extraordinary precautions in safeguarding Maxwell within the federal jail facility, doubtlessly seeking to avoid a repeat of the shocking Epstein death that continues to cast a shadow over the American criminal justice system.

The Daily Mail has reported on another supposed (former) Maxwell associate, who claims that Epstein’s former madame has video evidence of the billionaire’s elite political and financial connects engaging in the sexual abuse of minors. Epstein and Maxwell allegedly procured the footage for use as dirt, if they were ever threatened with prosecution for criminal activities.

Maxwell’s first court appearance is currently slated for Friday.
